My store has been playing the same music for months on end.

I got all excited when I thought I heard a new song one day.  Turned out it was an ad.

At one time, the Cultural Council accepted requests for stations.

Now they claim the store has no control over what plays.  Hmm.


 They're probably right. I've had four different store managers and none of them ever changed the music. I guess if you really hate Kroger music you should be working night crew. They don't have to listen to it, and if they're just stocking/conditioning then they usually listen to their iPods/phones. Maybe that's why none of them wanted to come to day shift and keep their pay whenever our dairy department virtually disappeared overnight.


  No, stores have significant control over what gets played and when. They either lied because nobody wanted to be stuck with that job or nobody knows how to fix it anymore.

I am so sick of the tired music that is played in my store that I am almost at my wit's end!!  Same old teeny-tiny playlist, songs played over and over and over. Some songs are played nearly every single day, or at least it seems that way.  I have asked store managers and their answers are vague or 'we should bring this up to the cultural council" I was told that there are several possible genres/formats available, but ours is called a "Mix" whatever that means.  Basically, the playlist is so narrow that (considering that tens of thousands,  or hundreds of thousands of songs considered "hits" have been recorded in the US alone just in the last 40 years) my Kroger has a list that can't be more than 1 half of 1 percent of hits made in that time period. Seems like about 100 songs or less on the playlist. Perhaps more, but I haven't heard a single "new" song in the last several months.  So-called "country" music plays up til around 7:00 am, then it switches over to this "mix" which is mostly rock and rather "hard" rock that does not appeal to ALOT of our shoppers, a good percentage of whom are in their 60s, 70s and 80s. The selection of songs seems specially chosen to annoy older shoppers and irritate employees (well, the employees who have not yet been reduced to mindless drones who go about their work like zombies).  A few disco songs (about 6) are included in the playlist: 1) Rapture, by Blondie  2) Fly, Robin, Fly (forget who that is)   3) Candi Staton's "Young Hearts run Free"  4) Heart of Glass (Blondie)  I will Survive (Gloria Gaynor) and maybe a couple others. Never mind that there were thousands of hit disco songs, some of them rather good even considering the fact that many "music experts" sneer at the genre. 

Basically, the songs "allowed" include one token song from Olivia Newton John (Please, Mr. Please), One token song from Helen Reddy (Angie Baby), one or two songs from Stevie Wonder, virtually NOTHING ALLOWED from great artists like Carpenters, Foreigner, Stylistics, Gordon Lightfoot, Glen Campbell, Bread, John Denver, B. J. Thomas, Maxine Nightingale, Elvis Presley, ABBA,  Bee Gees, Mariah Carey, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Whitney Houston(well, maybe one song),Elton John (with the exception of a couple of his crappier songs?). the list goes on and on .......has the Kroger company bigwigs realized that there is a whole wide world of choices out there when playing music for their stores?  Ever heard of Pandora?  I-Heart Radio? Even if they couldn't come up with an agreement with some type of similar service, surely Kroger can come up with something better than what *sounds like* a cheap bottom-of-the-rack close-out bargain-basement CD collection of tired songs played over and over???

PS. On "Senior Citizens Day" the playlist is even MUCH tinier, if that is possible, with some songs played again within a TWO HOUR PERIOD!! This happened last week with "Those were the Days" by Mary Hopkin!!  Come on, KROGER!!!   END OF RANT!!!

 Country music only plays between 6 AM and 7 AM at my store.  As far as disco songs go, "Heart of Glass" is a good song.  I wish they played one of the longer versions though.  I've never cared for "I Will Survive".  I remember they used to play "Fernando" by Abba.  The other Helen Reddy song they play sometimes is "You and Me Against the World".   Personally I like "Those Were the Days My Friend", especially the big ending.   The one song I am tired of is "Manic Monday".  Most of the time I can't hear what's playing.  So I only catch little snippets of songs.  I do notice that some songs will twice almost within the same hour while others are only heard once every few days.

Yeah, I like "Those were the Days" also, but it's only played on Senior Citizen's day (Thursday at my store) but my point is that even considering I DO like a few of the songs they include, the playlist is SO CONSTRICTED that I get sick of hearing even them so ridiculously often. Repetition becomes obnoxious. NOT very uplifting to the employees.........if a particular customer comes in only once a week or so, he or she may not be aware of how narrow and tiresome the playlist is.  

Does anyone have ANY idea how/who decides on the music playlists?  It 'smells' like the limited "likes" of one person,maybe  two at the most. Someone in "corporate" who is given way too much power?? 

Other artists that seem to be BANNED (or reduced to one song) include  Barry Manilow, Simon & Garfunkel, Diana Ross, The Eagles, Crystal Gayle, Johnny Cash, Air Supply, Jim Croce, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Roberta Flack, Neil Sedaka, Lobo, Don McLean, James Taylor, The 5th Dimension, Kim Carnes, Fleetwood Mac, Barbra Streisand, Andy Gibb, Commodores, Chic, Donna Summer, Queen, Spinners, John Cougar Mellencamp, Chic, Gino Vanelli, Eddie Rabbitt, Willie Nelson, Carole King, America, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Charlie Rich, Ray Stevens, Captain & Tennille, Franki Valli, Paul Anka, Eric Carmen, Ronnie Milsap, Pointer Sisters, Rita Coolidge, Marilyn McCoo, Yvonne Elliman, Kansas, and a thousand others..........  

Sorry for the boring list.......but just to get my point across! biggrin.gif

I will say this - I came from a store that played terrible music all the time, to one that plays music I would choose. And that is really nice.

my old store played the same stuff most of you are complaining about, with the occasional White Stripes or Talking Heads song thrown in. Where I am at now will play Madness, Wilco, The Cure, The Clash, Social Distortion...it makes me happy.

 When that song comes on at 1,3,5, and 7pm, we are supposed to go out on the floor and engage with customers.

This might only be a Dayton area thing.

Really, it's kinda hard to top the Nolan Ryan "GAAHRR-may" burgers spot, though, isn't it?  (Too bad it plays only eleven times an hour.)

Nolan really flung a no-hitter on that one: just 27 takes, and pretty much many of the sounds are recognizable English words.

 

. . . when you. use. your Korger loyalty cord.  And that's a still!

I've noticed that Kroger changed their playlist and I have this song stuck in my head and I cannot find it anywhere.

I've been trying to listen to the lyrics and all I've managed to hear is "wherever go are" I think it follows with " I will find you" it sounds like its paramore but I dont know...

I work for Kroger as a store manager. I'm also a musician and huge music snob, which as you might understand, crushes my soul to be trapped with the same garbage music for 50+ hours per week. Here's how it works; we have a sheet with various genres of music in one column, and ours of the day in rows for each genre. We cannot choose by artist, or song, only genre. The songs that make up a genre seem to be entirely arbitrary, as "current pop" is a compilation of pop songs released in 1998-2002. As you might guess, trying to strike gold for a playlist you can live with is a trial and error nightmare. You fill out the sheet and fax it to a company called InStore, who program the genres you want for each hour of the day and you get what you get. It's awful. You may also notice that each genre is rife with heartbreak ballads, which I think they use to subliminally generate sales on comfort foods, as they are generally more expensive. I'm currently trying to prod the powers that be to abandon their contract with this company and adopt a different music provider, but so far I've come up empty-handed.

ASCAP fees are primarily the reason we are restricted on what plays. Everything on the playlists have to be public domain, and only the most tired garbage pop becomes public domain.

Lyrics are... 

Breathing doesn't come until you leave the room. It's hard to believe it has to be true. Breathing doesn't start when you're in the room. You making me dizzy without even trying.

 Nope, that garbage pop is still copyrighted. In-store music services like InStore get licenses from the rightsholders (i.e. the record labels) so that they can broadcast the songs in stores that contract with them.

^ don't apologize, that was great!  We have our own little lyrics to certain songs at our store.  They're too explicit to post here, but I'm sure YOU can imagine! 

Some easy songs to alter lyrics on are:
(not sure if these are the titles)

"don't it make my brown eyes blue?"

"All by myself...don't wanna be...all by myself"

"just another manic monday"

we are awful...


 "Six o clock already?

why did i say yes to that request?

I just wanna sleep in and relax for once, but if I don't, I'll be canned.

Oh come on now, I can't take this day today!

This is the day I wish my dang check came." XD

Ironically appropriate: Don't know the artist or title, but it's an urgent, dead simple tune and the lyrics"No good!" and "trouble trouble trouble" repeated over an over again. It's like an alarm in a robot factory.

My store (in the Houston area) plays mostly sappy pop, western, and Mexican. One of the Mexican pieces is a woman singing in a dramatic, almost operatic style, accompanied by dramatic strings. I'd love to know what the heck she's singing about.

And a vaguely country-ish piece I can't identify about "your hair was twirling in the wind, and you don't even care," or something thereabouts.

One excellent song I've discovered over the store PA is Imelda May's "Mayhem", which I can easily see playing in a 40s dive. I'd love to hear it without the electric instrumentation May's band uses, but it rocks as is.

Oh, interesting that you should mention Birds Of New York! Listen to the songs "Incandescent World" and "Dreaming With The Lights On" and tell me you don't recognize those!!!
